SLIGHT ENEMY GAINS. After a bombardment of ever-increasing intensity maintained for over a week, tbp Austrian^ on Tuesday launched an'assault against the Italian positions on the Melette on the Asiago plateau. There were two attacking forces, the first moving from the north-west, the second from the north- east. The first attacking force was defeated by gunfire and in hand-to-hand fighting, the Italians taking oome hundred prisoners T ii 3 second attack led to fierce fighting which continued until Wednesday morn- ing, and at the end the enemy had gained some trenches and caused the withdrawal of the Italians from some advanced posi- tions. # MILAN THE OBJECTIVE. A London correspondent says Unoffioial messages from Italian Head- quarters suggest that a jecrudescence of the fighting may also be expected further west towards Lombardy. In brief, we aa-e about to witness a supreme effort by Mackensen to break through to Milan as well as Venice, an effort which, if un- successful, can hardly bt;, repeated. "GENERAL WI NTER" ABSENT. The Press Association correspondent, in a message received on Thursday, says tbwk an Italian general points out that the absence of General Winter" from the Italian lines is the greatest assist- ance the enemy could have had. 1 Tke general, however, did not believe that the enemy commander would be more suc- cessful than last year.
